This equation is used to calculate the fuel consumption of an engine used to drill for oil and gas.

Where:

  •   `Q_f` = Fuel Consumption rate in lb/hr
  •     N = rotary speed of engine in revolution per minute, rpm
  •     T = output torque, ft-lb
  •     n = engine efficiency
  •     H = fuel heating value in BTU/lb
